Ed’s Barber Shoppe is proud to offer the full-traditional haircut experience. Our slogan has always been "Old School Style. Modern Expert Cuts." We cater to both men and women alike, offering an unlimited variety of hairstyles always accompanied with friendly service.
Our prestige in Philadelphia derives from offering top quality services at affordable prices for nearly a decade. As it's always been, appointments at Ed’s Barber Shoppe are available, but not necessary. Walk-ins are always welcome.
Our recently relocated barber shop provides the kind of atmosphere where you go to hang out and relax, enjoy a cold beer or a shot of whiskey, engage in a great conversation, and leave with a memorable experience, not just a haircut.
ED WAS 7 YEARS OLD WHEN HIS MOM HANDED HIM A PAIR OF CLIPPERS.
His mother, uncle and grandfather were all barbers and passed down the family legacy to him. Ed was raised in Northern Libs area of Philadelphia, and after working for 20 years under the tutelage of master barbers in other shops, Ed Torres realized his dream of running his own business in the neighborhood he grew up in.
He opened Ed's Barber Shoppe (600 East Girard) in July of 2009, at then moved next door to (602 East Girard) in July 2018, doubling his space. Ed's goal was (and still is) to provide mentorship to young barbers, provide the highest quality haircuts coupled with exceptionally friendly service.
Ed is lifelong friends with other local Fishtown businessness and barber shops. He desired to renovate his new spot with a classic post-war industrial steampunk setting - a 1920 “Peaky Blinders” Bar - vintage barber chairs, rich wood, stainless steel, hammered copper.
Fun Fact: End went to school for mortuary science - he enjoyed the reconstruction of the face and body.
"GREAT PLACE! THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING AND YOU CAN'T BEAT THE PRICE. DON'T WASTE TIME WITH ANY OF THE "MALE SALONS" IN N. LIBS OR OLDE CITY, ED'S WILL GIVE YOU A BETTER HAIRCUT FOR HALF THE PRICE!"
- MIKE O.
"HONESTLY, PROBABLY THE BEST HAIRCUT I'VE EVER HAD. QUICK AND INEXPENSIVE WHICH YOU DON'T SEE VERY OFTEN IN PHILLY, ESPECIALLY FOR CLASSIC STYLE HAIRCUTS. THIS CAN COUNT AS TWO REVIEWS BECAUSE I SUGGESTED ED'S TO MY ROOMMATE, AND HE HAD THE SAME SENTIMENT THAT I DO."
- TED M.
"BEST CUTS. BEST PRICES. NEW LOCATION IS GREAT AND ED IS HIRING SOME NEW STAFF. ALL THE BARBERS ARE HILARIOUS AND HAVE GREAT PERSONALITIES."
